Logan's Run, the fantastic science fiction film that debuted in 1976, is getting a reboot in 3D. If you've seen the film The Island, you've basically seen Logan's Run with a slightly different twist and in a much toned down iteration.
The plot involved a dystopian future society in which population and the consumption of resources is managed and maintained in equilibrium by the simple expediency of killing everyone who reaches the age of thirty (21 in the book), thus neatly (and inhumanely) avoiding the issue of overpopulation which was of growing concern at the time. Those who try to escape their destiny are known as a “Runners”, and is hunted down by operatives known as Sandmen.
